JAZZ, LATIN, BRAZILIAN, MAMBO, POP! — The 18th Annual Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival runs August 21, 22, 23 at Esther Short Park in Vancouver, Washington. The Festival is “…the largest festival of its kind in the Northwest…” (ABC TV affiliate KATU 2, Portland, Oregon) and is recognized by musicians, fans and critics alike as one of the best summer concert venues in the region. “This year is one of the best concert lineups that we have had in the past 10 years” says Artistic Director Michael Kissinger. “We are bringing some of the most-acclaimed jazz artists in the world to the Festival, as well as some up-and-coming artists who are breaking out onto the national scene. So when people come this year, they will hear both well-established legends as well as new faces performing incredible music.” The lineup of major acts features: •The Manhattan Transfer — 10-time GRAMMY-winning vocal jazz legends. •Arturo Sandoval — Recognized as one of the world’s greatest jazz trumpeters and 10-time GRAMMY winner. •Poncho Sanchez — GRAMMY winning Latin Jazz band leader and percussionist. •Billy Childs — One of the most acclaimed jazz pianists and composers of our time and 3-time GRAMMY winner. •Pacific Mambo Orchestra — Phenomenal 20-piece Latin Jazz Orchestra and 2015 GRAMMY winner. •Claudia Vilella — Brazilian singer / composer and rising star on the American Jazz music scene. •Jane Monheit — GRAMMY-nominated Jane Monheit has been a leading light in both the jazz and cabaret worlds since emerging as a finalist in the Thelonious Monk Institute’s 1998 vocal competition. Local and regional bands will also be performing—including the acclaimed Seattle Jazz Singers, Flamenco and Brazilian Jazz band Camnihos Cruzados and Portland-based Go By Train, led by guitarist and bandleader Dan Balmer. 15 concerts will be staged during the 3-day Festival. “We have put together a diverse lineup of internationally acclaimed headline jazz artists along with fantastic local and regional bands” says Kissinger. “The Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival is recognized not only throughout the Northwest, but nationally as a Festival which presents great music performed by world-class musicians, partnered with 40 fine arts and crafts, 200 wines and delicious food from 9 local restaurants. What more do you need to create a perfect Northwest weekend?”

Students from Japan (and possibly Korea and Taiwan also) will be eager to practice their English that they have been learning at the Pacific International Academy at the Marylhurst campus. They will be coming to the White Oak Savanna to work for two hours in removing invasive plants. Would you like to team up with one of these students and then go to a nearby farm to have lunch (please bring your own brown bag lunch)? It is fun to have them practice their newly acquired English and work alongside American volunteers. The trip to the farm which is only 10 minutes away is always fun, too. We hope that you will join us with this hands across the water experience and do something good for the earth. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal.

We love local bike shops. They tune up our bikes after long, wet winters. Their staff ride on the same bike routes and trails that we do. They don’t mind if we try on every helmet in the store before making a decision and, for BTA members, they’ll usually knock 10% off the price. The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has teamed up with Base Camp Brewing Company and The Portland Mercury to pay tribute to these local hubs of bike community. Every month, we will have “BTA Shop Beers” at a different local bike shop. Find out what’s new in your community, learn about the BTA, and have a beer with friends old and new.

The rent is still too damn high and only getting higher. Renters can be kicked out of their homes for literally no reason at all. Profit is the law of the developers and most of the landlords. If you do not own property, you are considered a second-class citizen when it comes to housing stability. And if you do "own" your home, but are still paying off your mortgage, you are likely one job-loss, medical emergency or economic downturn away from losing it to the biggest landlords of them all: the banks. The Portland Renters Assembly is a gathering for the houseless, the "just-a-renter"s, and precarious working-class home-owners. Anyone committed to housing as a human right is welcome.There will be speakers on organizing for housing justice, a chance to tell personal stories, small- and large-group discussion about political strategy and lines of action.

#BlackLivesMatter! We are an Animal Liberation group collecting monthly vegan food donations for the Black Liberation organization, the All African People's Revolutionary Party's Free Breakfast Program. (Anyone in the world can donate! We will be outside and inside Sweetpea. Not in Portland? Message us for Paypal info - also INVITE FRIENDS!) Should the Animal Liberation Movement support the Black Liberation Movement? YES! Liberation for all! The same corporations who kill our animal friends have the blood of the Black community on their hands, from the environmental racism of big agriculture to the worker exploitation and disease of the fast food industry. The same corporations who kill our animal friends create food deserts which deprive Black communities. The same corporations who kill our animal friends also poison the air of Black communities. (More info at: www.sistahvegan.com) From the AAPRP: "The objective of the breakfast program is to demonstrate socialist principles in meeting a fundamental need for our people while creating the environment where we have regular access to children and adults for ongoing political education activities focused around Africa, Pan-Africanism, and socialism. "The breakfast program takes place every Monday and Friday from 7am to 8am. The children are fed a healthy breakfast while A-APRP organizers shower each child with lots of positive attention and inspiration. When school is out in the summer, we will institute a more formal education process that will complement the food being served. This program is part of a larger focus to promote the work of the A-APRP." more info at: www.aaprp-intl.org/ www.directactioneverywhere.com http://www.facebook.com/events/1598062300445772/

All Ages Afrikan Hiphop Caravan Benefit Show With Mic Crenshaw & Rasheed Jamal Come party with Hip Hop artist Mic Crenshaw and Rasheed Jamal and help raise funds for their November trip to various countries in Africa. Hosted by African Hip Hop collectives. $10 donation at the door but NO ONE will be turned away for lack of funds. www.hiphopcaravan.net ---------- Mic Crenshaw "In total, Mic Crenshaw’s music is not only a collective of juicy jams and skillful rhymes. This guy has made his mark on culture. Now it’s time that he garners critical mass to spread his positivity to the world at large." - Billboard Born on the Southside of Chicago, and raised both there and in Minneapolis, Michael Crenshaw is a world class MC and poet who has emerged on the national - and international stage. As a teen in the late 80's, Mic was embroiled in the violent streets of Minneapolis, leading groups to physically confront white supremacist gangs that were enforcing their will at local parks and social scenes. After beating back the neo-nazis, the violence remained, both in the streets and from authorities. Crenshaw decided it was time to escape it all and moved west to Portland, OR. Crenshaw says, "I wanted something new. [At the time] my ties with the streets were still pretty strong, and my social life involved drinking and fighting. I was ready for a change." In Portland, he quickly became one of the most respected artists in the Northwest. Beginning in '94, Crenshaw was the front man for the beloved Portland live Hip Hop band, Hungry Mob. In 2001, Crenshaw won The Portland Poetry Slam Championship and went on to finish as a national finalist. The Portland Mercury writes, 'Mic Crenshaw is a pretty mythic character... (with the Lifesavas) two of the very best hip-hop acts in PDX”. In 2009, Mic released his debut solo CD, "Thinking Out Loud", which spent 10 weeks in the top 10 on College Music Journal's (CMJ) National Radio Hip Hop Charts, peaking at number 4. "Mic Crenshaw blends his smooth flow with a street-hardened attitude, effortlessly spitting rhymes over a menagerie of horns, drums and keys. Fifteen years of making music, helping those less fortunate and social activism has made Mic Crenshaw a force worthy of a new generation of listeners." – College Music Journal Crenshaw’s 2nd solo release, ‘Under The Sun,’ was released in the winter of 2010. The single ‘Yeah’ peaked at #2 on CMJ’s Hip Hop Charts. "'Under the Sun,' serves up potent post-millennial rapping. Crenshaw’s flow ranges from a sensual ooze to machine-gun rapid-fire spitfire; and his musical backdrops are always masterfully creative." - Billboard In Portland, Mic's community efforts expanded from the local - to the global. At the close of a Human Rights conference he attended in Rwanda, Crenshaw was confronted by local activists. They said that in America there are computers and they need his help to get them computers. As a result, upon returning to Portland, he enlisted help from an educational colleague, Morgan Delaney. As a result, Globalfam was born. Globalfam is now a full entertainment company, record label and lifestyle company in one. It houses and produces Crenshaw's music. As well as, partners with the non-profit Education WithOut Borders (EWOB) to manage the community projects that Crensahw and Globalfam are involved in. Crenshaw now serves as EWOB's President. Seven years later, the request for computers has blossomed into a full computer education center in Burundi, Central Africa. Over 800 people have received training, and the center is now expanding, generating revenue and creating jobs by adding a computer repair shop. It is 100% locally managed and staffed. EWOB and Globalfam, along with its supporters, have been the sole outside sponsor. EWOB helps education, music and art initiatives in Portland and their work in Africa, as well serving as an umbrella for the Portland Books For Prisoners Chapter. Crenshaw is currently the Political Director of Hip Hop Congress and the Lead U.S. Organizer for the Afrikan Hip Hop Caravan. The Caravan toured six African cities in 2012 and will tour 10 cities between Cape Town and Cairo in 2014. The Caravan engages each city with a show in the city center, a Hip Hop Symposium and a free show for the youth in a township or ghetto. Crenshaw was invited to be part of the Caravan after playing the Shoko International Festival in Harare Zimbabwe in 2012. The Shoko Festival 2012- Crenshaw played in the Glen Norah Township, Zimbabwe with Zim's legendary Ba Shupi. Crenshaw is currently recording music for his 3rd solo album, releasing the first single 'Superheroes' ft. Dead Prez. 'Superheroes' peaked at #2 on Rapattacklives.com singles chart. -

In honor of #MikeBrown our organizers have planned to produce community education panels August 7/8th the discussions will focus on the history of protests, politics and policy, civil rights, black youth, education, disproportionate discipline,community economics etc... We will look at Oregon's history and the use of politics, focus intently on the justice system which has been utilized to undermine the democracy of America's poor and disproportionately our countries Blacks... Panel Moderators include consultants from the film Whitelandia; Mic Crenshaw, Teressa Raiford Mazique and Devin Williams!! Panels begin August 7th, and 8th Workshops and the rally event is a Community Art Project, on August 9th at 1pm in Honor of Michael Brown!!

Oakland, California based artist and educator, Lauren Hartman's artwork responds to current topics, which serves as a record in our cultural conscience. The sea has become a platform to discus global issues connected by international waters. It is a passageway for commerce, culture, and corruption. Hartman works primarily in embroidery and sculptural installations. Using traditional craft and culturally-charged photo documentation of our encounters with the natural world, she improvises new terminology, addressing socio-political issues of today. Revealing grandiose oil-rig explosions at sea or a man tossing cans of condensed milk from a Soviet tank to a polar bear through detailed hand-stitching and re-examining our humble relationship to nature.

Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon documents the history of conflict between the Portland police and community members throughout the past fifty years. The film features personal stories of resistance told by victims of police misconduct, the families of people who were killed by police, and members of Portland’s reform and abolition movements. Utilizing meditative footage taken at sites of police violence, experimental filmmaking techniques, and archival newsreel, Arresting Power creates a space for understanding the impacts of police violence and imagining a world without police. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

FILM SCREEENING AND DISCUSSION ABOUT THE LASTING IMPACTS OF THE U.S.-FUNDED MILITARY COUP IN CHILE ON SEPTEMBER 11TH, 1973 Chile is often considered the laboratory for the United States’ neoliberal economic policies because of the extreme privatization measures imposed on the country during the 17-year Pinochet dictatorship that worked closely with Milton Friedman and the University of Chicago to turn these economic policies into law. Despite the return to “democracy” in 1990, Chile has continued to honor and uphold the constitution written during the Pinochet dictatorship. This film screening will include two 30-minute documentaries that focus on Mapuche land reclamation and language revitalization as well as a discussion with the filmmaker about the specific laws that have been used to target the indigenous Mapuche people since the dictatorship began in 1973. •Weichanmu: we are going to war follows a Mapuche community in the midst of being evicted from their land as they question the presence of the forestry industry in their territory, the legitimacy of the state and the capitalist system whose advance is a direct threat to the survival of Mapuche culture, thought and way of life. •Zuguleaiñ: we will speak explores the potential disappearance of the Mapuche language and cultural identity. It documents the journey of four Mapuche youth from across Chile as they join a growing movement to learn and revitalize their language, Mapuzugun. The continuation of many of Pinochet’s neo-liberal policies and human rights violations, despite the country’s supposed return to democracy, has left many Chileans and Indigenous Peoples questioning the legitimacy of this political system. Come be a part of this disucssion as we explore the influence of U.S. foreign policy, the Pinochet dictatorship and the continued oppression of the Mapuche people in southern Chile.

It's the largest and longest running on-water cleanup event of its kind in Oregon, co-hosted by the Clackamas River Basin Council and We Love Clean Rivers. Over 350 volunteers will rally together in rafts, kayaks, drift boats, and SCUBA gear, to scour the streambed and banks for trash. Since 2003, over 32 total tons of garbage have been removed to help preserve and protect the health of this beautiful and bountiful river for people, fish, recreation, and more. All non-motorized watercrafts may participate in the event. Boaters must have Class II+ whitewater experience and wear a life jacket and whistle. Volunteers will put in between 7:30-9:30 am at boat ramps located along the river which include Barton Park, Carver Boat Ramp, Riverside Park and new to the event this year - Milo McIver State Park's Lower Boat Ramp. With your help we can keep this 20+ mile stretch of the Clackamas clean from Estacada to the confluence with the Willamette River in Oregon City. Whoo-hoo!! And for everyone's hard work, a FREE BBQ will be available at Barton Park from 3:00-5:00 pm. On-water and on-land volunteer opportunities are available.

The Hawthorne Hostel is having its 12th Annual Bike-­In Movie. This year we are featuring “Survey of Open Space” ­A pair of urbanites embark on a  4000­mile bicycle ride in search of the last wild place in America; to their dismay they  find it. Set in the wake of America’s great western expansion, the film is a portrait of bike  touring and a meditation on wilderness. The epic journey begins on the Mexican border  and spans the continent, touching three oceans before concluding in the Arctic. Each year since 2004, the HI­USA Portland Hawthorne Hostel has hosted a unique  celebration of all things bicycles with our Bike­In Movie event. It brings together  travelers staying in our hostel with local bicycle enthusiasts, families, and members of  the neighborhood. At the Hawthorne Hostel we support bicycle travel as a fellow aid for  independent travelers to sustainably venture forth and connect with other communities. This event is free and open to all. There will be a free taco bar with drink available  thanks to generous donations from our sponsors. We are also excited to announce the  local talent of Yak Attack (“jam­tronic”, jazzy, electronic, and danceable) will also be  here for your musical entertainment. The Hawthorne Hostel is owned and operated by the HI­USA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit  organization, and is a part of a national and international network of hostels. Our  mission is “to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world  and its people through hostelling.” We are committed to sustainable business practices,  and for over 25 years the 34 bed hostel has been offering unique, safe, clean, and fun  lodging for over 3,500 domestic and international travelers annually

GAINING GROUND, a feature-length documentary film by Elaine Velazquez and Barbara Bernstein, tells the stories of farmers making extraordinary changes in their farming practices so they can feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains. From farms in Oregon’s fertile Willamette Valley to underserved communities of color in Richmond, California, GAINING GROUND reveals the tenacity and courage of these diverse urban and rural farmers, committed to serving and empowering their communities. The documentary interweaves experiences of urban farmer-activists in inner city Richmond, California; a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from a commodity dairy to a sustainably grown produce farm; and a large farm in the Willamette Valley transitioning from grass seed to organic grains. Gaining Ground instills in its viewers the potential to create change on a personal, local and global scale. Our goal is to inspire people to make choices in their own lives that support local and sustainable food and the farmers who are working to take back our food system.

The Beatles--the world's most famous rock and roll band--travel from their home town of Liverpool to London to perform in a television broadcast. Along the way they must rescue Paul's unconventional grandfather from various misadventures and drummer Ringo goes missing just before the crucial concert. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

Dirty Queer is an X rated open mic: a place to celebrate sexuality and strut your creative stuff! Hosted by renegade writer and poet Sossity Chiricuzio, Dirty Queer has proven itself to be a thought provoking evening of excitement, passion, laughter and full body shivers. We're looking for queer erotic entertainers of all sorts: dancers, jugglers, singers, musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, magicians, gender performers ... if you can do it in 5 minutes or less (w/ minimal props/equip), this open mic's for you! We average over 120 people a month, so come early if you want a seat. Everyone who attends has a chance to win door prizes from local businesses, as well as a percentage off items at our very own feminist bookstore and host, IOW! Your donation of $1-$5/person for this event goes directly to supporting IOW, and more donations are always welcome. Caveats: 18+, consent is key, no hate speech, sign up is first come, first serve. Need a dose of Dirty Queer sooner than that? Come check out our photos, samples, bios, videos, and podcast on our website: www.dirtyqueer.com. Contact: info@dirtyqueer.com

Our Food, Our Choice: We have the right to know what's in our food and what we feed our families. Last year, over 400 cities around the world participated in this day of action bringing hundreds of thousands of people into the streets to March Against Monsanto. In Portland, more than 5000 people marched through downtown streets. Why We March: • Protect bees and monarchs from pesticides that are killing our pollinators. • Protect our clean water. • Protect the health of children and elders whose immune systems are more vulnerable to pesticide residue. • Support local farms and farmers. • Honor our agricultural heritage and the economic value we all enjoy from farms and food. • Demand more oversight and accountability from agencies we employ to safeguard our food and health. http://www.facebook.com/events/883968378332574/

INSIDE HER SEX is a thought-provoking, feature-length documentary that explores female sexuality and shame through the eyes and experiences of three women from different walks of life, each brave enough to chart her own course of sexual discovery. Through the varied, candid and intensely personal stories of these three women this film will delve to the core of their sexuality to the deep, intimate, explosive, powerful place that is INSIDE HER SEX. The Clinton Street Theater Sex Worker series celebrates the accomplishments of sex worker film and video makers by screening relevant works about sex workers and the sex industries from around the world. The films focus on sex workers' rights; organizing efforts and working conditions for strippers; global sex work and sex work as a labor issue on the international agenda; sex workers as artists; queer sex workers; sex work and gender identities; portraits of strippers, prostitutes, doms, madams and more.
